Chitrananda’s leadership in ATHAKASA paved the way for State patronage for Sinhala poets and their poems. His literary talents are multi-faceted. Saraswathi, the Goddess of literature and Arts was a benign benefactress to him. Rarely indeed, a broadcaster illumines himself as a writer, poet, author, film scriptwriter, lyricist and composer. In Chitrananda all these aspects rolled into one to make him a literary Super Man.
